Congenital lyme disease

Dear Stephen,
Could you recommend a protocol for a 38 pound 4-year-old with congenital lyme? The only symptoms are irritability and moodiness. Otherwise she is healthy. I’m assuming teasel and cat’s claw – what about reservatrol and andrographis? Are they safe in children of any age? My older children who are 12 and 10 also have lyme, although not congenital. Thanks.

Stephen’s response:
Biopure U.S. sells andrographis liquid. If your 4 year old has such mild symptoms I would just use teasel and cat’s claw. You might try astragalus for a month or two and see how she responds. You can use these herbs with children if you adjust for weight, please read the material on side effects, etc., before you do.
